  • Description

    Joe Bugner of Britain, who defends his European Heavyweight title against Italy's Dante Cane tomorrow (1 March), could be next in line for a shot at Muhammad Ali's world championship title.

    News of the possible Ali-Bugner bout broke today, as the blonde-haired British heavyweight put in final preparations for his own title defence.

    But first Bugner has to beat Cane, and Ali has to dispose of American challenger Chuck Wepner next month. If both are successful, they could meet in New York's Madison Square Garden in June.

    "Wonderful news," said Bugner from his training headquarters in Bologna. He's full of confidence about his European defence, too. Cane, now aged 35, weights nearly a stone more than Bugner. But the last time they met, in 1972, Bugner hammered the big Italian to defeat in the sixth round.
